Review by: Dionne Washington on Sep. 04, 2013 :
I have read this first book in this saga and found it completely good. I loved the characters and the dangers they find themselves in. And the ending was really great too. Most likely I will be purchasing book 2 soon as well. Bravo on a great story!

Review by: Ms Dang on May 16, 2012 :
I wasn't as hooked as most readers by the 1st chapter. However a lack of reading material kept me soldiering on valiantly, and I read page by page, growing more enraptured, till the nail-biting cliffhanger. The author skillfully drew me in and kept me reading till 3AM not caring that I have to be ready for work shortly. My "only"complaints are: as stated in one of the reviews, the "ease of acceptance", which is lacking in believability; and that I'll unlikely be able to continue the remaining parts of the saga

Review by: Dune Elliot on April 17, 2012 :
From the beginning I was intrigued by this book - it started out exceptionally well with a great hook from the start and a good concept. However there were a few things that I found were disconcerting and tempered my enjoyment somewhat.
The author has done a good job keeping track of all the characters in the book (of which there are many) but with this many it forces a lack of detail and depth in many of them. The main characters have been well developed and have personalities and quirks all their own but many of the side-characters (with the exception of the pirates) all feel the same - which is a shame. There is so much jumping between the amount of characters that it was exceedingly hard to keep them all straight in my head - 5 rulers, their wives, their children, their wizards, their childrens' wizards etc. It was all too much.
The world building is good and the author has done well to bring different elements into each place, as well as creating a symbiotic relationship between all of the races she has occupying each land. The only thing I find hard in this regard is that I know all the races are distinctly different but there is no description about them so I can envision in my mind what sets each of them apart.
Lastly was how fast the characters seemed to accept their paths without question - it was like "this is your path"..."okay". There was none of the natural questioning of things that people naturally do - acceptance was too easy and I think should have been developed more, rather than 'having a feeling' and knowing that it was all the right thing to do.
The end of the book has left me curious and wondering - I have an interest in what happens.
Anyway, despite all that I did enjoy reading the book and would like to read more, but I personally wouldn't pay $5. If they were on sale for $3 I would add them to my library without hesitation.

Review by: Brandon Fiechter on April 03, 2012 :
I highly recommend this book! The many points of view in this book add to its intriguing and well-developed plot. The characters themselves are very believable, likeable, and interesting. Reynolds is definitely an experienced writer, for she is great with character development, suspense and plot, scenery and imagination, and world building. It also amazes me how Reynolds kept all the countries, kings, and other characters' names straight, while keeping their personalities and emotions intact. Truly a very hard skill to develop. All I can say is, if you like epic fantasy, amazing characters, and a fascinating plot, this book is a must-read!

Review by: Jordan Rage on Feb. 12, 2012 :
Anathema is an intricately woven story whose characters possess so much depth that you can't help caring about them. Reynolds creates images that truly make the world of Trivallyn come to life. I cannot wait to read the rest of the books in this series.
